Now that summer is winding down, it seems like all of the exciting movies are out. That’s because they are, with Mission: Impossible – Fallout serving as the last really exciting movie of summer. In the last few weeks, only a few intriguing movies have arrived, though that will change very soon.
As the weather starts changing and leaves start falling off trees, that means fall is upon us and it will bring with a ton of fantastic movies. But instead of just focusing on the fall, I took a look at the last four months of 2018 to see which are the most enticing movies you should get excited about and I narrowed down the list to ten.
Here are the 10 movies to look forward to in the last four months of 2018.
- Release date: September 7
The latest movie from the Conjuring universe is The Nun and sees a diabolical-looking nun running around and scaring the crap out of a sister. Given how popular the franchise is, don’t be surprised to see this movie become a blockbuster hit because people love getting scared, including me.
- Release date: October 5
Venom is Sony’s first attempt to establish a Marvel universe of its own based on the Spider-Man characters it holds the rights to. That mostly includes villains like Venom, and judging from the first trailer, it’ll certainly be something. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Not long after, a government agency known as Sector 7 (and some Decepticons) begin hunting the Transformer.
